As a vegan, this was the ideal product for me. Before, I had the whey isolate protein and I found the taste to be quite chemical and not very nice. However, this protein has a much more subtle, natural taste. I got the unflavoured version but added flavour drops (the banana ones) and it tastes pretty good. The texture is a bit odd but I really like it. It's kind of grainy, but reminds me of oat milk. The shakes are quite thick - I tend to use about 300-350ml of almond milk with 1 scoop. I can understand some people not liking the texture, but I think that's personal preference.
I have, for some reason, over the last couple of years started to become less tolerant to the everyday protein shakes that are on the market. due to getting a bad stomach after drinking the normal shakes i was missing out on a quick and easy intake of protein after my work outs. i did some research and was informed that it would be worth cutting out some of the typical ingredients found in the protein shakes i had been drinking. this lead me to the vegan blend. Taste is good. Chocolaty enough for me. mixability is very good. no lumps etc. protein content is decent enough with fairly low cals. texture, is a little different but nothing to get upset about. most importantly....NO MORE BAD STOMACH. i am now able to drink a quick shake with no annoying pains that follow. highly recommend if you have the same problems.
I purchased 1KG to try, as I'd like to move away from dairy. I wasn't sure what to expect, as some of the reviews don't exactly sell the flavor and texture. However, I was pleasantly surprised, it is great. Texture is similar to making a shake with oats in a blender. I can also imagine this working really well in recipes too. I will definitely be back for more.

Best vegan protein for taste, value, mixability and ingredients.

Choc smooth - absolutely in love! The best protein I have ever had/tasted. would really appreciate another flavours!
Before this product I tried hemp protein which is a great product I found definitely made a difference to me. This tastes better, easier to mix and as it combines 3 dairy-free products into one I expect it to work even better! Haven't had it that long but so far so good!Goes Well With:Just water.

Although I have no tolerance problems with dairy. I wanted to remove it from my diet and see what difference and effect there was. In order to do this I had to remove Whey from my diet. This was the hardest hurdle to overcome due to the reliability of Whey protein in my shakes and bars etc. I bought the Vegan Blend powder to try as it was a mixture of three different types of protein powders and offered more benefits than just one variety. I buy / use the chocolate flavor and so i am unable to comment on the unflavored version. The powder mixes just like any other whey protein powder but the texture and taste is different as expected. The taste has a more earthy feel to it and I can imagine to some to be quite bitter. The chocolate flavoring does a good job of masking this bitterness. The texture is slightly more 'grainier' than whey powder but I don't mind it and it isn't noticeable if you make your shake with more liquid. In my opinion I have noticed more energy in my training and daily activities but without hard evidence to prove it, I cannot say everyone will experience the same benefits I have felt. As for vegans athletes / gym goers, this is a great substitute for whey and personally I think you are better off with this blend instead of whey. Although this is slightly pricier than impact whey and has a lower protein content per 100g (If my memory serves me right) I have used this for a few months and will continue to do so in the near and far future. I also use this for baking my own dairy free protein bars/ flapjacks.Goes Well With:Oats
First time using a vegan blend. I am personally finding it hard to swallow, not due to taste but more so texture. I can't gulp it down as I normally would,I literally need to clear my throat with every mouthful. I'm not sure whether this will take some getting used to over time or whether I just can't handle this type of texture. Hopefully it will get better as i not only bought 1kg of this but also another 2.4kg from another company which gives me the same problem. :D I hope you have more joy.

I came across Vegan Blend when looking for a complete protein blend that is dairy free. I can't tolerate even the slightest amount of lactose so MyProtein's dairy free range is a real blessing for my workout goals. VB is a little gritty but it mixes well. The chocolate flavour is a little over-sweet for my palate but I'm getting used to it ;)
I was worried about ordering the unflavored version because of the what the other reviews said about the taste. it tasted a bit odd the first time i tried it but ive been using it for a week now and its fine. just placed an order for 7.5kg unflavored.
suprized at how well it tasted. coca. would appriceate the option of not leaving deliverys with neighbours. best vegan protien ive used so far.
I was after a clean protein supplement so have this a try. Mixes well with water, tastes good but even better with almond milk, a banana and frozen berries. Good price too. Happy customer. Goes Well With:Almond milk, berries, banana and almond butter
Due to a serious case of lactose intolerance I am forced to use a dairy free protein alternative. The vegan blend does the trick. With several sources of protein "in the mix" I find my results more noticeable compared to using soya protein. The taste isn't the best on its own I would admit but when added to my fruit smoothie it's hardly noticeable. It's a great product and i would definitely recommend. Goes Well With:Fruit smoothies

I have tried both the chocolate flavour and the unflavoured versions and my preference is for the unflavoured. I found the chocolate far too sweet and artificial-tasting. If you want to blend it into various types of smoothies, then chocolate doesn't always work with the flavours you're including. Also, the protein content is reduced by the inclusion of cocoa, although not by very much. The unflavoured version works very well if you're blending it into other flavours. On it's own it's a little bitter, but not unbearably so. Overall, a reasonably priced vegan protein powder that mixes quite well and provides a good protein boost to your daily intake.Goes Well With:Smoothies, incuding banana, non-dairy milk and any other veg or flavours you want to add.

Great protein for vegans! It's a pitty, that flavored version contains sucralose. Is there Amino acid profile available somewhere?
The chocolate is great, but for the love of god don't buy the plain. I figured it would just be a base to which I could add cocoa powder if I needed to, but no. It's disgusting. Just get the chocolate and mix it with bananas.
Really impressed with the quality and excellent service.
I used to buy a raw sprouted rice protein but it was costing a fortune so I decided to try this and I will never go back. Taste is great for a vegan blend and I can make my protein fluff because you can make it thick if you addd a small bit of water. It mixes perfect in shaker. Smooth. Unflavoured one is not as good even when I added my own cocoa and sweetener so I reverted to the chocolate flavour even tho I wasnt too happy about the sweetener used in it- but no ill effects- seems like a good producr- my tummy is very sensitive and my digestion has been perfect since switching over so its always a good indicator for me. Goes Well With:Water. Recipes
Having only become vegan fairly recently, i have been used to all the lovely varied sweet flavours of whey, so knew this was gonna be a gamble. As i thought, the first shake i made with water i couldn't even swallow, tasted like i just licked some mud in a field! So i tried it in the blender with almond milk and a frozen banana.... whizzed it up and no word of a lie, i found it delicious ! I was so relieved coz this protein suits my diet perfectly with no sweeteners or additives as well as 100% vegan. Overall I'm impressed and can see that my progress in the gym won't be hindered by not having whey protein anymore, which is great.Goes Well With:Almond milk & a frozen banana in the blender
Was really impressed with the ingredients list of this product, the favour isn't great on either the natural or the chocolate but it's not that bad. I will continue to buy the vegan blend (unflavoured) but will no longer be buying the chocolate flavour having noticed that it is flavoured with sucralose (aka Splenda). This is not something you want to be eating too much of and I didn't notice this on the ingredients list at first. A shame as otherwise it is a great product.
Excellent option for those who do not want to eat animal protein or milk and egg. Despite being a protein of plant origin, that sometimes leaves some doubt about the results to be as effective as the other proteins, has proven to be quite effective. I usually drink two to three shakes per day as recommended which I add the consumption of protein bars that "my protein" sell. This mix for what a need is very effective in my daily physical recover, given that I go one and half an hour of gym five times a week. As the flavors for me the ideal is a mix of the no flavor with chocolate flavor (50/50). Thanks for this product! PS. sorry if my english is not the best but it is not my primary language. Goes Well With:always use water.
For those trying to avoid whey & soya protein this is a great option. Balanced nutrition from multiple vegan protein sources and a high protein % but, as with all these blends it doesn't taste brilliant in it's natural form so be prepared to mix with some strong flavours & natural sweetener to deliver anything vaguely palatable. No fault of myprotein, just the nature of the beast. If you can't stand the natural go with the chocolate which I am sure is easier to swallow. :-)
This protein is great for making protein bars or protein cake, I use it instead of flour as it has a similar consistency. The flavour is unusual, but I've grown to really like it. I wouldn't use it in shakes as the consistency is thick and the flavour is unusual.Goes Well With:Almond essence, yogurt, grated pear and eggs-protein bar, yum!
I got the unflavoured version and found the taste (with water) extremely unpleasant, with a poor stomach reaction as well. I tried adding some of the powdered flavouring that MP sell (strawberry cream) but this took you from bitter to disgustingly sickly without ever going through anything pleasant. I still have 2kg undrunk.
I was looking for a protein powder without any artificial additives or sweeteners so I tried the unflavoured version of this vegan blend. I wasnt expecting it to taste good because Ive tried hemp protein before and it was so bad I couldnt swallow it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It mixes well and doesnt taste too bad. I feel healthier now Im getting my protein from pea, brown rice and hemp, instead of the whey blends which all have artificial sweeteners.Goes Well With:coconut milk and some raw cacao powder for a bit of flavour
This is my first purchase with Myprotein and I am a happy customer. The chocolate flavour is great and when mixed with almond, soy, or coconut milk it's satisfying shake! It is not as gritty as others I have tried considering its a vegan mix. When I use this powder I experience less muscle ache after a big work out. I'd recommend it to anyone.Goes Well With:Almond, soy, and coconut milk
This Product is ideal for my food choices, I didn't buy this protein shake specifically to build muscle but to repair my body after several quite severe operations, as I feel well and getting stronger by the day I can confidently say its not doing me any harm. If I have one criticism it's the fact that it is a little gritty in the mouth but it tastes fine.Goes Well With:Almond milk.
This vegan blend in chocolate powder tastes great, mixes well and is great to use post workout or anytime either on its own with water or in a smoothie with added berries, spinach, almond butter and almond milk. Very impressed that it didn't clump when mixed with water. Goes Well With:Water or almond milk.
I bought a small unflavoured vegan blend and a large chocolate. i am sorry I didn't do it the other way round as I don't like the chocolate and the unflavoured is more versatile. I add fruit and nuts to the power mix for variety and flavour. Receipe suggestions would be good!Goes Well With:Fruits and nuts
The aminoacid profile is good and the overall effectiveness follows. It's quite difficult to mix as the solubility is poor and the texture once mixed is sandy. The taste is not that good, at least for the 1kg pack comes without flavouring, but mixing it with fruit or vegetables in smoothies solve the problem.
Brilliant as I have food allergy's and whey protein/anything with milk doesn't agree with me. I have the chocolate flavour and so far it was brilliant as a shake with oat milk. I make banana protein chocolate "pudding" and banana chocolate protein "cookies" with it. If you don't want a shake simply take a large bowl mash a ripe banana in it add a scoop of chocolate vegan blend then either leave in the fridge to cool for the pudding or for the cookies spoon cookie sizes dollops onto a baking tray with lined with parchment paper and bake on a moderate heat for 15 mins. So far so good, easier to supplement my diet to hit my macros :) I bought this when it was on offer at a good price, will buy again but hoping I can tie it in with some promotion as it's a lot more expensive than whey. Can't fault myprotein as usual the delivery was quick and faultless, always a happy customer and will continue to work my way through their product range, looking into BCAA's next to get more out of my training.Goes Well With:Non dairy milk, and bananas!
Im lactose intolerant vegan and this is brill. Arrived quickly, though pouch was split open and some of the powder did end up in a box. Pouch was underneath bubble wrap but obviously got damaged on the way.I got a freebie which is whey - so here a message to folks who give out freebies on the website it would be prudent not to send vegans anything derived from animals. Simple question in your order form would stop you from doing that mistake. Its my first ever protein and I was worried after reading reviews by some people who didn't like the texture and taste. I can honestly say that as long as kind of powdery grainy texture doesn't bother you you will be fine. I bought chocolate version and plan on getting unflavoured one since i think its going to be more versatile. I like it with loads of water at least half a litre if not more, or with soy milk, chia seeds and frozen fruit it makes for nice soft serve ice cram treat. The grainy powdery texture is still noticeable in that mix. Doesn't bother me but I can clearly see why some people may find it off putting. Goes Well With:soy milk, chia seeds and frozen fruit i
Whey proteins always made me bloated. The vegan blend does not give me any issues. Good taste.
The Taste is pretty Unpalatable To Be Fairly Honest with you all. Buy the flavoured version or just buy some 'MP flavouring' that'll probably make the whole process a lot easier. The flavour in my opinion is pretty much a necessity, to actually down the shake and keep it down. Besides it not the taste that matters *sigh* it's the effectiveness. It seems to do the job well, gives you a bit more energy and of course less side effects. I swapped sides to join the Vegan crew purely because it's a lot more safe (milk contains bad hormones and new studies reveal that it could increase the risk of a fatal illness in the future also). As an end note; it has an amazing amino acid profile. Don't let me defer you from purchase though, just purchase and find out for yourself what it's like - it might even be your cup of tea.Goes Well With:Orange Juice. Put it in a blender with lots of berries and fruit.
I was looking for a protein powder without dairy, soya, corn and sweeteners, and this (unflavoured version) is it. On its own, the powder smells like tinned white beans, so I use it in smoothies. Blended with 50-100 g frozen berries, 1-2 T ground flaxseed and some coconut milk in addition to water, it's more than acceptable in taste, and still fairly Low Carb and natural. It is satisfying in every way, even though it doesn't taste like ice cream! ;) I am hoping that it will help me retain lean mass as I'm losing excess fat.Goes Well With:Frozen berries, flaxseed, coconut milk
Great product, but too much sodium. Can hold water in your body
Be warned! The unflavoured version is undrinkable. However after experimenting I managed to enjoy a vegan shake adding cocoa and stevia along with a frozen banana. So it may take you a dozen of shakes until you find what works for you.
This stuff is great. Tastes great and has great results. Only downside would have have to be the mixability with the texture reminding me of casein protein. I've tried both the hemp protein and brown rice protein but this one hands down beats them both.Goes Well With:fruits
I bought the unflavored variant. No bloating, works well, I recover much faster from workouts and only drink one scoop per day alongside a versatile vegan diet. At first I tried mixing it with water or almond milk, stirring it with a spoon, and while it would mix well, I could still feel the gritty texture and it was very unpleasant. But then I bought a food processor (one of those cheap wand-style processors) and mixed in a pint glass one banana, one scoop of Vegan Blend and water and just mixed it for 10-15 sec. The smoothy you get is really tasty, doesn't feel gritty and goes down really easily! It's also really good value for money!Goes Well With:Water and bananas.
Great dairy free product, balanced protein blend full of other nutrients, arguably better for you than single protein sources like whey, expect results. I've seen them within 2 weeks, use with confidence...Goes Well With:Milk or water...
I use this stuff in protein brownie and the texture it gives is awesome! It really does bake very well, and in the microwave too for mugcakes. Really do highly recommend it. Does also make tasty shakes, especially with the vanilla or chocolate flavdrops. So if you're looking for a chocolate protein powder to cook/bake with, go for this! Goes Well With:Quark, cocoa, oats, coconut flour. Almond milk
I had been warned that vegan protein powders were disgusting, so I went with a rather expensive one that had been recommended to me - only to find that it tasted too sweet and incredibly fake. I generally eat a whole foods diet, so this was hard to stomach twice a day. I purchased this vegan unflavoured one from this site figuring no matter how bad it was, at least it was affordable -- only to find that I *LOVE* the taste. It tastes whole and natural - exactly the way I wanted it. I didn't mix it with fruit; I didn't add sweetener; I poured about 200ml of almond milk in it, shook it up, and drank it straight. It's absolutely perfect, and I'm actually looking forward to my next one. Thank you so much for a protein powder that isn't full of nasty additives!! Goes Well With:Unsweetened almond milk
So I have been using this protein since switching to an entirely plant-based diet a few years ago. Before using this I was taking whey protein supplements around 4 times a day. One thing I noticed when taking the dairy-free protein is I didn’t get any bloating at all when consuming it (which I and may others do with milk-based protein). I also noticed a dramatic increase in my recovery times despite only using the “Vegan Blend” twice per day, as opposed to the 4 times I was consuming whey per day. The great thing about a blend is that you get a full amino acid profile – pretty much equivalent to that of whey when various plant-sources are combined. One should note this is also true when eating wholefoods. If your diet has no dairy or meat in it, you should combine proteins in each meal. So instead of just having a bowl of lentils or a bowl of beans – try combing 1 cup of lentils with 1 cup of quinoa. This will ensure a full, rich amino acid profile to ensure you recover as fast as possible. This protein combines brown rice, pea and hemp protein, contains digestive enzymes and has very low carb/fat content. One heaped scoop provides approx 25 grams of protein. I would highly recommend this product and give it a 9/10. The only missing point is the flavour – there aren’t many options here and the chocolate contains artificial sweeteners. I would recommend adding your own raw cocoa powder for a great tasting version.

Great protein, great mixability, taste takes some getting used to , but its ok by me.
I love Vegan Blend, as it conveniently combines pea, rice and hemp isolates in order to create a complete protein. I even enjoy the taste, mixing it with almond milk and pouring it over my breakfast or enjoying it with fruit and nuts between meals to keep me full. I find it is much easier to digest than other proteins. The only fault is that it doesn't last long enough :P I can also only afford it when it's on offer. My friends who use whey protein (not vegan) benefit economically when it comes to protein powder.Goes Well With:Almond milk
I'm not an average customer. I am a vegetarian with a daughter who has severe food allergies, as I am feeding her I can't eat dairy, egg, wheat or soya which restricts protein options - only so many pulses and nuts I can eat. This is a great way of getting a daily boost. I've tried it with hemp milk and oat milk, but enjoy it most with water and a dash of peppermint really really cold - I pop it in the freezer for an hour or so. Goes Well With:Peppermint, water, frozen
I switched to this when I became vegan and must say I really like it! It was a bit weird in the beginning, but I love it now. I drink it with oat milk every morning for breakfast and have no problem with the mixability as I use a hand-held blender (as did I with the other non-vegan protein shakes before).Goes Well With:oat milk
i got chocolate smooth flavor i mixed it only with water. in regards to taste it was strong gritty unpleasant . i am sure if one mixed it with other foods it would taste better. i did finish all and consumed 60 grams of vegan blend protein per day . i wont get this again .
When looking for a vegetable protein supplement I came across Myprotein's Vegan blend. When choosing a supplement I look for quality ingredients without all the nasties that generally come to make them taste nice. This is what attracted me to this product. I mixed my with unsweetened almond milk and water. It mixed really quickly and easily and although taste isn't usually on my priority list when choosing a supplement, the great taste of the cocoa powder was an added bonus. Great product at a fantastic price. Will certainly order again.Goes Well With:Almond Milk and water.
If you're vegan, vegetarian or your body just doesn't respond well to whey protein (like mine) this Vegan Blend is a great product. I train crossfit 3 times a week and use this once or twice a week to get the recovery process going. As far as the taste it takes a little getting used, but I mix 1 scoop with approx. half a litre of water right after training and after a couple of them I actually think it tastes quite okay. It doesn't mix that well but as long as you remember to shake when you're not drinking it's good to go.Goes Well With:Water!
On paper this Vegan Blend is the perfect protein, it is composed from exactly the right amount of macros and ingredients for me. It has a very strange taste, if anyone has tried powdered BCAA supps before, imagine blending some of that with a chocolate Nesquik. A friend of mine said it tasted like it contained crushed paracetamol which I thought was fair. But I've stuck with it and found a great workaround for the taste: mix with unsweetened almond milk. It's very inexpensive and mixes it quite thick, it adds a better taste and even more good nutrients to the shake.Goes Well With:Unsweetened Almond Milk, willpower
After searching for a fair while, this was the most popular, and best priced vegan protein! I purchased the chocolate flavour and I really enjoy it! Sometimes i do mix a little agave nectar and chocolate powder just to enhance the taste as the flavour of one of the ingredients (possibly hemp) is a little too much for me. I have only used the protein for 2 weeks so I'd have to wait at least a month to comment on effectiveness. Overall I'm very happy with this product and will more than likely buy again. I'm glad there is a cheaper option for vegans now.
The vegan blend does seem to mix well, but the taste is something else! I've tried it with Almond milk, fruit juice, water, added fresh fruit but still the taste stays. Not sure if I will buy it again.Goes Well With:better with fresh fruit in a smoothie!
My physio who is a vegetarian recommended this supplement as part of my training. Since I tend to live mostly on greens, this Vegan blend has become my second consumer before and after training. It has got a weird taste and I am hoping to shape and tone up well in a couple of months time using this product. It would be ideal if there were other Vegan brands that produce great results. Goes Well With:I mainly use Water. Ideal for eating with Porridge and other fortified cereals...
I am usually weary of reviews which rate protein products too lowly on taste, after all the main purpose of you buying the thing is an easier source of protein and not the taste, so when I saw this product at 30% off (making it cheaper than my usual none-vegan blend) I thought I would give it a try. However, when I tried my first double scoop shake it is safe to say this was the most vile protein supplement I have ever tasted, though to be fair the directions do only say to use a single scoop. When taking single scoops the shake is tolerable enough to finish the bag, but that just prolongs the experience by having to take in a higher number of shakes than would be otherwise! I think this product (one scoop per serving only!) is probably fine for vegans and those who like the taste of green bark , but if you have no objects to any other protein shake I suggest you do choose ANY other protein shake! Goes Well With:Vegans
As a veggie, I struggle to get enough protein from whole food alone and have been taking protein supplements for years. I don't cope too well with dairy protein products and have been looking for an alternative for while. This product, for me, is not just as goods as, but better than the Whey Isolate I used to get. However, it seemed a bit daft to me to take such pure product and then ruin it with flavourings, so tried the unflavoured at first. I tried and tried and tried, but just could not get past the taste no matter what I did (and once you start faffing with blending it with stuff, it cuts down on the easy side of the shake!). So I eventually gave in and ordered the chocolate version, which tastes absolutely fine. It takes a little getting used to, but now I even prefer the flavour and texture to Whey. The flavouring is the only downside. Myprotien takes a great, pure, healthy, plant based protein blend that beats everything else on the market for price and effectiveness (as far as I can find) and then ruins it by adding sucrolase as a sweetener!! Please, please, please myprotein swap this artificial sweetener, which studies suggest is not that great for us, to a natural sweetener such as Stevia. Then this would be the best vegan protein on the market and deserve 5 stars.Goes Well With:Total Nutri-Greens for super-healthy, plant based shake.
A little bit gritty, but tastes alright. This is the first vegan blend I have tried and will stick with it
I am vegan, and that is what I was looking for.Goes Well With:Goes well basicly with everything I tried, juices, part of smoothies and so on.

I don't normally write reviews but feel that this product warrants one. I don't use dairy products because of the health implications and also won't use Soy protein because I think it's only suitable for women. Since I started using Essential Amino Acids about 2-3 years ago I've realized that your body doesn't need anywhere near the amount of protein most bodybuilding websites suggest. I know that because I now consume 1000 calories a day less than I used to and have just lost body fat and actually increased my strength and muscularity. While getting enough EEA's is the most important factor if you don't ingest any non essential amino's its possible the body will convert the essential amino's and therefore reduce your muscle building potential. I don't have must of an appetite these days and try to follow as close to a vegan diet as possible so I generally consume 3 full meals per day 2 of which consist of the following: 100g Instant Oats, 40g Vegan Blend (Chocolate), 10g Glutamine, 5g BCAA's, 7g MCT Powder. For dinner I either have 150g Chicken, 125g Wholegrain Rice, 40g Spinach and a tea spoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I also take 10g of a mixture of Wheatgrass and Barleygrass powder before my breakfast shake and consume 5-10g of EEA tablets before and after training and before bed. In the after training I use 40g of fast acting carbohydrates and I also mix 20g BCAA's to drink before, during and after training. This product is far superior to whey and any other animal product. I always use vegan friendly supplements these days because they work more effectively and don't give you the stomach upset of whey/milk which I don't use what so ever!! I have used a mixture of Brown Rice Protein and Pea Protein Isolate in the past and found them effective but the Hemp Protein gives it a better overall amino acid profile. I highly recommend this product to anyone involved in any sport or physical exercise. Goes Well With:Instant Oats, MCT Powder, Branch Chain Amino's, Coconut or Rice Milk, Glutamine
I am now on my third 2.5Kg pouch of the Chocolate Vegan Blend I always mix 1 big scoop with 300 Mils of water into my shaker bottle I find it mixes very well with only a slight grainy taste which I found you soon get used to, the taste is not the best but it is only 300 Mils. I switched to the Vegan blend after becoming completely fed up with the bloating and Gas the Whey proteins always gave me.
Thought I'd add another review to anyone looking to getting this. I'm about to order my second pouch of the 2.5kg. Overall very happy. Wasn't expecting the taste to be great. Compared to Syntha-6, it's not. But still very drinkable. I put half a serving in my porridge in the morning and have half a serving right after the gym. On the whole, if you want a protein shake without milk or eggs (which is what I needed), I would definitely give this a try. Have only had the chocolate flavour, which is what I'm ordering again as I'm not sure it would be drinkable unflavoured.Goes Well With:Water
I bought this since I decided to cut dairy out from my diet. I've only used whey before so all I can compare it to is that. This protein is really tasty, and I love it! It's a really good alternative to whey. It's "grittier" than whey when mixing with water, but that's not a massive issue. I've made protein pancakes with it too, and it works really good. I think the only negative thing I have to say is the lack of flavours to choose from. I'm not a huge chocolate fan, even though this is really nice, and almost has a sort of nutty flavour to it. I will most likely get this again.Goes Well With:Water, almond milk, banaaaanas.
Honestly this is by far the worst tasting supplement I've experienced in my life (unflavored). I bought it based on positive feedback here, but can't believe someone actually likes the stuff.Goes Well With:Nothing. Tried to mix with milk, cocoa, honey, bananas, frozen fruits.. it spoils everything.
1 scoop of Vegan Blend in about 300ml of water mixes really easily without leaving any residue. The unflavoured version doesn't have a particularly strong taste and I've found it far less unpleasant to drink than a lot of other protein powders.Goes Well With:Water
Still using the Vegan Blend as it's a good product that is working well!Goes Well With:Orange squash.
I've had Vegan Blend for a few months now. I quite like the taste of it, although it is slightly gritty due to the rice protein. I always get the chocolate flavour as opposed to the unflavoured version. I quite like it, except it can be quite sweet at times, but nothing that stops me having it. I have my vegan blend as another source of protein, rather than having two whey shakes a day. This way I get a variation of protein in my diet.Goes Well With:Almond milk or water
I have got to say that this is the worse supplement I have ever tasted, probably enough to put me off supplements for life! Even the smell of it is disgusting...I can normally withstand bland/unpleasant flavours, but this is too much!
This product is great, we tried the chocolate version and it tasted nice, blended well in the mixer cup and was very satisfying. Best mixed with nut or rice milk, mixed with water and was still okay though. Will be buying this again and again.Goes Well With:water, rice or nut milk.
This is a great allternative to whey, mixes well in water/milk and mixes really well into porridge. Tastes good aswell Goes Well With:Myprotein Fish Oil
I bought this based on price point, some good reviews and willing to try something different. I'm lacto-vegetarian so I thought it also might be better than relying on dairy-based protein too. It's OK but I may not use it again. It mixes with both milk or water reasonably well. The chocolate flavour is a little grainy but palatable enough, though it doesn't go down as well as my usual Myprotein Whey. However, there is no bloated feeling after taking it, which is good, though admittedly that's only mild with the whey. Only 3 stars for effectiveness as it's early days yet - I may change my mind completely if the gains are good!Goes Well With:Myprotein Creatine
Mixes really well with almond milk or water, found the taste not the best, but when mixed with almond milk this took the nasty after taste away. Having been using vegan blend after my 10K runs and have noticed my legs feel a lot less tired/aching afterwards. Have tried other vegan protein supplements and the unflavoured vegan blend is the best I have found.Goes Well With:Almond milk, soya milk, water
Vegan blend is quite effective plus the taste is not bad. If you are vegan like me and trying to gain some muscle mass I will highly recommend you.Goes Well With:Water
The unflavoured version of Vegan Blend tastes horrible when mixed with water or orange juice.
This Vegan Blend protein is very easily stirred in a shaker. It has a good structure of a grinding. The daily recommended portion is 3 spoons on 30 grams. It has a pleasant taste with a slightly chocolate flavour. It's not very sweet. I will recommend it as a good alternative to a soy protein.Goes Well With:Soy milk, water
There is no getting away from the fact that the taste of the flavoured vegan blend is horrid. However I have found the benefit if this protein probably the best I have taken. I think the mix of bcaa in the protein gives me a fullness to my muscles that other proteins lack. I only bought because it was on offer, however I will buy again ....albeit I will still use a peg on my nose Goes Well With:Water
I've been using this Vegan Blend for a while now and it seems to work - recovery is good, strength is improved and there's a slight gain on mass, so overall I am very pleased. Mixed on its own with just water it tastes vile, but mixed with fruit squash it's fine. On the whole, I feel that the vegan blend is a good product.Goes Well With:Fruit squash
The vegan blend for me has produced the best results as its protein mix is easily assimilated, where dairy based supplements have left me feeling heavy/bloated/or phlegm filled, this leaves me feeling clean and full. I don't seem to get that hungry for a good period of time after and my body has shown the greatest change under this regime of supplementing. This has been the first supplement to really show a difference.Goes Well With:Total nutrigreens. BCAA's
Ordered Vegan Blend in Chocolate Smooth. Wouldn't say it was too chocolately though..although I quite like the taste. The texture obviously isn't as smooth as whey, it's slightly grainy, but again, I don't mind this. Works well in protein cakes/blended smoothies.Goes Well With:Blended fruit/veg, cocoa, yoghurt
Overall, very happy with this product. Provides a great alternative to Soya / Isolate products and is a more balanced mix. Tastes pretty good (Chocolate Smooth) when compared to other products and mixes well. Only time will how effective it is...Goes Well With:Almond or Oat Milk.
This Vegan Blend is quite sweet and not very chocolatey. I would rather it was the other way around. It mixes really easy but does have a powdery taste. I mix it with soya or rice milk. Goes Well With:Soya/rice milk, mashed banana, chia seeds
The Vegan Blend is surprisingly versatile and tasty. Vegan blend exceeded my expectations. Although I only purchased it for variety's sake (and the fact it was on offer) I will be using it again as an alternative to whey. It's filled with soy proteins and is particularly tasty in its strawberry flavour. It's a welcome accompaniment to my morning cereal.Goes Well With:Milk or water-I've used it with cereal and as a post-meal shake.
I am lactose intolerant and after using soya protein shakes for several years, I stumbled upon the Vegan Blend on MyProtein's website. I admit I was a bit apprehensive at first to try this product as I expected it to taste poorly, but I was pleasantly surprised that it's not as bad as I originally thought it would have been. The product is also quite effective and I have never gained so much muscle mass using previous products. The taste may take some getting used to (I recommend the chocolate) but it really does work!
Tried Vegan Blend as I already get enough soya in my diet, plus it's a good blend of healthy plant proteins. Very impressed with the product, my one criticism is that it may be a little too sweet for some palates. Also, I would prefer it if it was sweetened with stevia rather than artificially. Overall, a very good product.Goes Well With:Orange juice
I bought this Vegan Blend due to lactose intolerance and wanted to decrease my whey intake. I'm now on my third bag (always unflavoured). I love this stuff, mainly because it does not have soy in it and there are not many vegan blends out there which do not have soy in them. It obviously doesn't taste too good (or mix too well) on its own, but mixed with oats, coconut milk, some almond butter, and a few vanilla Flavdrops it's breakfast heaven. It's also pretty good in chocolate protein truffles and chocolate beetroot protein buns. This is a great product. Goes Well With:Almond butter
Excellent product. Chocolate smooth flavour is verry good. Best vegan proteins. Goes Well With:Water.
Bought Vegan Blend for my girlfriend as her first protein/recovery shake. After one mouthful of the rank tasting shake it is safe to say that she will never again use a protein shake. I went with myprotein as the taste is meant to be better, this product really lets the name down.
I ordered the unflavoured version of Vegan Blend so I can mix it in smoothies etc. and not have the extra kcal of chocolate. It's obviously not the best tasting on its own but does the job well with having a good variety of plant-based proteins that are great for muscle growth and body repair. It mixes well and can easily assimilate. I would recommend this to any vegans, vegetarians or anyone that wants to up their daily protein intake.Goes Well With:Coconut Milk, Soya milk.
The Vegan Blend seems like a nice blend of protein sources and is easy to mix but is far too sweet; it's about twice as sweet as it should be. I have to drink it very watered down to manage it. I don't mind a bit of sweeteners but it's not good to consume more than necessary.
My daughter who needed to gain muscle mass is using vegan blend and is gradually creating lean healthy muscle, she swears by this and it is such good value and extremely effective if you like to build muscle mass the healthy way, without additives and other bits and bobs....she uses the unflavoured as it is more natural and mixes it with pureed fruits and veg. She loves it, it's been a God send.Goes Well With:Blitzed pressed pineapple juice, coconut water, watermelon or avocado, beetroot and celery
I love this protein powder, I chose and sticking with the unflavoured powder, because I only eat natural foods and don't see the purpose of drinking or eating anything with artificial flavouring it's unnecessary and goes against health, the taste is exactly the taste of what ingredients it provides. This may sound strange to some but personally I like it and I am happy with the purchase (it's my third purchase), it's helped to repair, recover and strengthen my muscle and that's the purpose of it. I'm very happy with it! Also the ingredients could be more obvious though because it makes it look a like the flavouring and sweeteners are included even in the unflavoured powder, which from what it says it doesn't, it says the artificial sweeteners and flavouring are only included in the -flavoured- powders only which of course it will because it's unnatural in the first place, it also states in brackets Sweetener (flavoured pouch only) and so on. As I am aware it says the sweeteners and flavouring and so on are only in the flavoured powders only like the chocolate and the other choice not the unflavoured one. I hope this reviews helped new buyers, I highly recommend (this goes for all protein powders) to choose the natural one.Goes Well With:Water, Pure coconut water and/or fresh raw fruit/vegetables in a blender.
I have struggled along with rice/pea/hemp protein, and whilst they are effective they are really a struggle to take regularly as the taste is pretty poor (as expected obviously, pea is going to taste of pea paste and it does) This stuff tastes basically like chocolate whey, I'm amazed. It has definitely helped me add size taken twice a day.Goes Well With:water + crack a full whole eggs in there
The Vegan Blend is good protein, it seems to do its job as well as whey. But, it's a bit gritty/powdery no matter how long/hard you mix it. I put in a banana and maybe an egg or two and that helps smooth it a bit.
Vegan Blend is a great tasting product that has helped me gain weight in conjunction with the products mentioned below and resistance training. Thank you Myprotein for supporting the vegan consumers!Goes Well With:Instant Oats, Peanut Butter, Omega Oil, soya milk
I have only just started using this product, and always mix it with cocoa powder and a banana. But it mixes really well its a bit fibrous but thats ok for me. It's a good product to try if you're trying to cut out animal products.
I've been on the Vegan Blend for a month now as I'm dairy intolerant, and so far the results are good it's helped improve strength. I can't say it's increased mass that much to be fair, but as a pre-shake I find it gives me a bit of a boost and as a post shake it seems to help me recover well from my gym session. As far as taste is concerned it is horrible if just had with water, but I mix it with the double concentrate squash. Apple and blackcurrant is nice and so is orange.
Vegan Blend is brilliant for a vegan or someone maybe even with a lactose or dairy intolerance. All that is added is cocoa powder for flavour so it's very natural and has a full amino acid profile due to the mix, which is great. However, the taste, being honest is terrible. I am not fussy with tastes as I usually down my protein shakes within seconds, so taste was never a huge deal. I am half way through a 2.5kg bag and not sure if I will be able to finish the rest of it. It's like drinking sand blended with hay or something. It gets all caught up in your teeth and at the back of your throat and makes me feel sick for an hour or two afterward. Unless you have to buy something like this like if you are vegan or have intolerance, then it is a good whey replacement, but apart from that I do not recommend it.
I tried unflavoured version of Vegan Blend, and I do not recommend it at all. The taste is really bad, and gritty also. I put it in all kinds of smoothies and there is still a hint of that dreadful taste, but at least I can consume it. But, I feel great after a meal like that, so I'm going to purchase Vegan Blend again but the Chocolate version. I hope it tastes better, as unflavoured is yuck!
I thought I'd give Vegan Blend protein a go after noticing digestive discomfort on regular whey protein supplements. I have to say that any issues cleared up almost instantly, leaving me feeling less bloated and looking leaner as a result. Taste and texture wise, the chocolate smooth flavour is a little chalky, and is not as sweet as some whey products (but that's a good thing). I found that mixing with 300ml unsweetened almond milk gives a creamier finish than using water and the nut flavour complements the chocolate very well. I will not be going back to whey after using this!Goes Well With:Almond or Hazelnut milk
Best vegan proteins.
I like this as a different protein hit for the usual whey and with protein coming from a number of sources, it makes it great. It's a little gritty due to the rice protein, but overall taste and mixability is fine. I always get chocolate flavour and it is fine, maybe ever so slightly sweet.
